We were closed yesterday, Tuesday January 27th, along with the rest of New England as we were hit with a near record snow storm. Wednesday morning dawned bright and sunny, and thanks to the hard working Ops crew who plowed throughout the storm, Factory Five is up and running. Estimated snowfall amounts are about 30″ and it made for killer photos this morning. Check out how Factory Five fared and the massive wall of snow after the clearing.
With all of the snow, we thought this would make a great photo. The Factory Five 427-powered Mk4 in front of the buried rig.
The front of the building was spared much of the snow drifts.
Stewart Transport driver Donald Furr had loaded up Monday and was ready to head out when the worst of the storm hit. He rode out the storm in the Factory Five parking lot. Don is from Texas and this is his first time shoveling snow!
Ops Director Nate Johnson borrowed his Dad’s John Deere front end loader.
On north side of the building, the drifts were close to 6′ high!

The building was ready first thing this morning and by 9 AM, we had received our first steel and aluminum delivery.
Check out the snow banks on the outer perimeter of the parking lot.
Sort of looks like a snow version of a steely wheel.
Our Ford F-350 did a great job of plowing.
With the sun shining bright on the snow, we figured it would be a good chance to take some pictures that you wouldn’t ordinarily see. Check out the photos of our LS7-powered GTM and 427-powered Mk4 Roadster.
